Our client, a software company, is looking to hire a fully remote full-time UX / Visual Designer who has the ability to envision and lead projects through the full design life cycle.

• Wowing clients with your strategic thinking; actively demonstrating the value you can add to their complex business problems
• Ensure all versions of project UX/UI documents are complete, current, and stored/ archived appropriately
• Passionate about understanding (and keeping the team and clients informed about) current and emerging UX/UI trends

UX Designer Skills & Experience:
• At least 4 - 6 years of design experience (and the portfolio to prove it) as a hands-on designer in a UX/UI team preferably in a digital agency environment or similar; experience shipping software applications is a plus but not required
• Fluent in responsive design, mobile/tablet UX/UI
• An understanding of business and the ability to integrate them to balance user and business goals
• A critical thinker who can confidently discuss information architecture and interaction design in the digital space
• Capable of making designs defensible, and able to anticipate feedback from designers and stakeholders
• Focused on designing holistic experiences, and advocate for the user from start to finish
• An understanding of the importance of user research and knowing how to conduct and implement it; capable of assessing what and how much research should be applied to different types of projects
• Capable of developing big picture strategy around a project, synthesizing stakeholder input as well as research findings to integrate multiple viewpoints; use design facilitation and presentation skills to drive alignment around UX decision-making
• An advanced and flexible user of digital design tools, including Figma, Sketch, Invision, Zeplin, etc. (mastery of the full UX toolkit from research methods and analytics to design tools)
• The ability to engage with clients—confidently presenting design work, articulating and defending design decision making
• Capable of reviewing other designers’ work, and of defining complex work in order to lead projects from beginning to end
